CHEMISTRY HELP CENTRE
The Chemistry Help Center (C2010) is on the second level of the Chemistry/Physics Building. The staff provide one-on-one assistance with labs as well as theory and problems related to your chemistry course. Study desks are provided; however, due to space limitations, we must restrict their use to the study of Chemistry. DROP BY AND LOOK AROUND.
Chemistry 1050 Final Exams:
Students should have a strong background in pre-university chemistry, e.g. at least 65% or better in Chem 3202.
LABORATORY SAFETY TRAINING Science 1807 and Science 1808
Cheating is not permitted. The act of cheating includes, but is not limited to, the copying of lab materials and assignments from previous or current years, or using unreferenced information in a lab write up, paper, or presentation. University regulations pertaining to cheating are found in the university calendar in section 6.12 ( https://www.mun.ca/regoff/calendar/sectionNo=REGS-0748).
Final Exam Equation Sheet
You will be given a sheet of some equations on the final exam.
Course Grading Scheme:
See individual professor
50% is the minimum mark for a passing grade. However, students must also obtain both a minimum of 40% on the final exam and 50% in the laboratory portion of the course. If both requirements are not met, then regardless of term performance, a student will not receive a passing grade. If the calculated grade would be greater than 50%, a student will instead receive a grade of "FAL". There are NO supplementary exams for Chemistry courses.
A scientific calculator is essential in laboratories, class tests, and examinations. Programmable calculators and calculators with “built in” libraries which cannot be cleared are NOT permitted in class tests and final exams. If you are unsure as to whether or not a particular calculator is permissible, check with your instructor.
See individual professor
Policy on Missed Tests:
The points for any test not written increases the value of the final exam by the appropriate percentage providing a suitable excuse is provided for missing it (medical note, etc.). There will be no make-up tests.
